The above link is to a slide show for a collection of images that shows WTC 6 (aka New York Customs House) and the condition of the building throughout the day on 9/11 and during the clean up phase after the attack.

---------

The following is an article that was published in 'Customs Today' about the destruction of WTC 6.


QUOTE
And then Tuesday happened...
September 11, 2001. A date that will be forever etched in our memory.

The jumbo jets that crashed into the World Trade Center's twin towers, into the Pentagon, and into a field in Somerset, Pa., shattered, at least for one long moment, our nation's most deeply held convictions about our own impenetrability. The human and material losses, and the sheer chaos that followed the act of war by foreign terrorists, the most devastating ever on American soil, will not be fully comprehended for years.

New York Customhouse smoldering in wake of terrorist attack on the World Trade Center Towers.

At this writing, 344 people are known to have died at the World Trade Center; the number missing is at least 5,756, a sum that includes victims from more than 60 nations. One hundred and eighty-nine people died at the Pentagon. Two hundred and sixty-five people died aboard the four commercial planes.

But the esprit de corps, generosity, heroism, personal sacrifice, and political unity spawned by that single act have been immediate. Even as the meltdown of three of the nation's best-known icons - symbols of military might, economic preeminence, of America's very way of life - was in progress, the recovery effort had begun.

New York City lost more than 300 emergency personnel, primarily firefighters, who rushed into buildings to rescue others - immediately, on auto pilot, with no apparent concerns for their own safety. It took more than 24 hours to put out the fires at the Pentagon, and very few fire hoses, if any, extend 110 stories. In addition to the twin towers, the terrorist attack leveled a 22-story World Trade Center hotel and Trade Center Building 7.

Building 6, only 40 feet from Tower 1, housed the Customs Service. Building 6 suffered a complete internal collapse; it's now a burned-out shell. But - the 760 Customs employees, and the 40 or so employees who had been attending a seminar there, all got out safely.

And like a phoenix rising from its own ashes, many were back at work within hours.

The entire Customs Service is currently at a Level One alert, the highest state of security alert, which calls for the maximum level of passenger, cargo, and conveyance examination. Along with the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service and the Border Patrol, we are providing sustained, intensive anti-terrorism operations at land borders and airports. The Office of Field Operations has reassigned 380 inspectors to 19 international airports around the country to strengthen the already heightened security measures being implemented by the U.S. Marshals Service and the Federal Aviation Administration. On top of that, 98 inspectors have been reassigned to land ports along the northern border to enhance Level One alert levels there.

September 11, 2001.

The first explosion sounded and felt like a bomb. We looked up and saw giant holes in 1 WTC, which is the building right next to mine. Some people were saying there had been a plane crash... It never crossed my mind that the whole building could collapse... I looked back and saw the explosion of 2 WTC. I didn't see the plane, just the explosion. It was more horrible than words could ever describe. The building was made of silver metal, and the explosion sent shards of silver debris cascading down like fireworks around the building. I worried that I was in the middle of a full-scale attack. I just wanted to get away from Manhattan, but there was no escape from the island. The bridges and tunnels were closed, and I suspected that the ferry was not running. So I turned back uptown and walked and walked... Thank you for being so concerned about me. I feel so lucky.
- Joan Mazzola, National Import Specialist

It was not I who 'ordered' the evacuation of 6 World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, 2001. I didn't have to do that, the employees 'ordered' their own evacuation and they accomplished that task in record time. I did not have time to 'order' an evacuation and, if I had, there would have been no one left to follow that order. We had many drills and tests over the years in regard to emergency situations and our people, thankfully, were well schooled.
-John Martuge, Director, Field Operations

Fellow citizens, we will meet violence with patient justice, assured of the rightness of our cause and confident of the victories to come. Our grief has turned to anger, and anger to resolution.
- President George W. Bush

Homeland Security
In September 26, 2001, Commissioner Bonner addressed Customs employees at Headquarters (and others via satellite broadcast) saying, "As the monstrous terrorist acts of September 11 showed, the basic freedoms we had come to take for granted as Americans are under seige."

"On that dark and infamous day, our citizens, our nation came under attack…our economy came under attack … our democratic way of life came under attack from the enemies of a civilized world." "As the guardian of our nation's borders, the Customs Service has a major part to play in this great struggle. We are a vital link in the chain of Homeland Security. For this is a campaign that will take place not just overseas, but all across America. Our people have mobilized across the country and, despite adversity, carried on their work in the very best tradition of this agency..." "It is in the name of those victims that our New York employees, some of whom lost friends and family in the attacks, are valiantly carrying on the mission of Customs and renewing the purpose of their work. I was deeply impressed by their spirit and determination. Indeed, the example they have set should serve as inspiration to us all when, at times, the tasks ahead seem overwhelming."

"Now more than ever, we must come together as an organization to advance the urgent cause at hand."

Good work DYEW.

Are you able to put a timetable on the images of the WTC6 "crater" as it was definitely much changed the day after 9/11 to the damage seen in photos taken between the towers collapsing and WTC7 coming down? I have some information I can post on this once I have time and a chance to dig it out.

Hey DYEW, there are a few pre-collapse pictures of WTC 6 that show what appears to be fire damage and windows blown out before any collapse.

One can be found here:

and here:

Something happened to that building prior to any collapse. The question is, would debris from impact cause that? Most likely not because surrounding buildings, including the WTC have their windows at ground level still intact.

I hope this helps any further research. thumbsup.gif

I also came across this video on Youtube! that appears to be a flash in the 2nd story window of WTC 6. I'm not sure if it is a reflection or what because it doesn't show up in other widows above, below, or on the same story. However, it confirms the story of Patricia Ondrovic.

[url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOyrih9xcL0"]WTC 6 Flash 2nd Story Window[/url

Not sure if you have read this interview with a Patricia Ondrovic an emergency medical technician [EMT] with the Fire Department of New York. From a Killtown interview:

KT: You mentioned you were running west on Vesey Street, what happened after that?

PO: I just kept running. I was aware there were other people running as well. After passing the cars on fire, I was trying to find someplace safe. I tried to run into the lobby of 6 World Trade, but there were federal police -- maybe 4 to 6 of them -- standing in the open doorways. As I tried to run in, they wouldn't let me, waving me out, telling me "you can't come in here, keep running." As I turned to start running west again, I saw a series of flashes around the ceiling of the lobby all going off one-by-one like the X-mass lights that "chase" in pattern. I think I started running faster at that point.

KT: Did you hear any "popping" sounds when each of these flashes in the WTC 6 lobby were going off?

PO: Yes, that part was like a movie. The pops were at the same time as the flashes.

KT: Can you estimate either how many flashes you saw or how many of these "pops" you heard inside this lobby?

PO: At least 6 before I was turned away.
KT: Did you think these explosions in the lobby were maybe lights popping out as in an electrical surge, or did they seem more like explosives going off in a timed manner?

PO: I immediately got the impression they were timed explosives. I have never thought they were anything else, not then, not now.

KT: Have you ever seen a building being demolished with explosives on TV and was the flashes and pops similar to that?

PO: It did remind me of just that. I had seen something on a Las Vegas c
----

Personally, I think this building was wired up too. Afterall, wasn't it all the WTC buildings that collapsed on or after 9/11 and no other buildings?

Another picture that was supposed to be posted above of WTC 6 before the collapse. Notice how darkened the outside is and the missing windows.

Thanks for the pics! I'll definitely add them to the slide show.

Yes, I remember the Patricia Ondrovic story. I believe the pictures prove her account.

In regards to the pics of WTC 6 before the collapses. I remember looking at those a few years ago. I also went back and looked at other pics of the building before 9/11 and it appears that this is just the way these buildings looked normally, when the light and hit them in certain ways.

I'd love to see what you mean? I don't believe WTC 7 did much damage to WTC 5 or WTC 6. I think the craters happened during the collapse of WTC 1 and were separate explosions, timed to go off with the collapse of the 2nd Tower. That's when all of the really big fires started. However, it's very hard to tell what damage was the result of the first collapse or the second collapse, since there's not a lot of good pictures of the conditions during the time between the two collapses. Remember it was only a half hour between collapses.

OK so it took a while! Here are 2 photos, the first is taken after the towers have collapsed and while WTC7 still stands.



The second is taken after WTC7 collapsed, probably the next day



And this is an overhead view of WTC5



More photos here

In my opinion, the slightly raised part of the roof of WTC6 seems to have totally disappeared the next day and been replaced by absolutely nothing.

Hi KP,

Great thread at LRF (until it was hijacked).

I'm going to put a thread up soon about the alleged WTC7 fires and throughout the day, WTC5 and 6 were either on fire or smouldering billows of grey, white and black smoke.

Definitely weird as hell mate. I can't find another word for it. WTC5 and especially 6 were "eaten/consumed". The clues are definitely in the dust.

PS DYEW, I've used a few of your images at your site. Hope you don't mind?

Please fell free to use the images I've found. They are not 'my' images.

WTC 5 & 6 both suffered from heavy fires that broke out after the collapse of WTC 1. FDNY did little to stop these fires and they burnt themselves out in a couple of hours. WTC 5 & 6 were also made of steel and the fires didn't last very long and the steel did not fail.

Thanks DYEW,

Was there ever a fire report done on these buildings? I know that they were burning most of the day to different degrees but the images of them fully ablaze, were these taken around 3pm? Or when? Thre's so little info.

Here's the development of the crater in case you haven't noticed it in the bigger photos. Roughly the same area on each of these 3 photos is marked in red, you can check he accuracy by referencing various gouges and debris.

From a photo taken on 9/11 after the collapse of both towers



From a photo taken on 9/12, the day after



From the satellite image taken a few days later



As you can see from the final photo, the debris that was on the top of the building is still visible in the crater so it looks like the multiple-story hole was created from within the building

It looks to me as if the huge black hole in the last photo contains the facade panels from from north dace of tower 1 which fell from heights of as much as 1100 feet. The lighter area on the bottom of the photo seems to not have any facade panels on it.. only the aluminum cladding sections. The black is likely the staining from soot from fires... which burned well after the collapse inside the building.
